• are there multiple ways to make a circle?
• There are many ways to make a circle, but you have to make sure that when you fit the parts together, it must be a circle. Circles are very particular shapes and if one of your pieces does not fit, it could become an oval. (of course, if you do not mind that it is an oval, you may ignore this message)
• Can you make a parallel shape into a semi shape?
• It would depend on the shape. If it were a parallelogram and you cut it the right way, then it would be a parallel shape. If it were a circle and you made it into a semi circle, then it would not be a parallel shape.
